Welcome to Crimefest

The fourth birthday of PAYDAY is fast approaching and with it, the PAYDAY gang once more set out on an epic adventure. This time, Bain provided them with details on what will lead them to uncovering more about Cagliostro, the legendary treasure hunter and heister of old myth.

Curious as to what they might find, the PAYDAY gang agreed to help Bain explore the dungeon he had located. Not knowing what challenges stood before them, onwards all of them still went. On the Road to Crimefest, who knows what treasures they might find in the deep, dark depths of the dungeon?

What is the Road to Crimefest?

The Road to Crimefest is an event leading up to Crimefest. During the Road to Crimefest, the community receives challenges from OVERKILL to complete together. Completed challenges are exchanged for free content and new features being added to PAYDAY 2 during Crimefest.

Go into a bit more detail - how does this community event work?

For 17 days, between the 28th of September to the 14th of October, four challenges will be offered every 48 hours. When 48 hours have passed, new challenges will appear. When a challenge is completed, the community will receive a hint to what the final reward is. The reward is then released during a separate event called Crimefest, between 15-24 October.

What is Crimefest?

Crimefest is a 10 day long annual event that we host for our PAYDAY community to celebrate everything PAYDAY. The event coincides with the original release of PAYDAY: The Heist, the first game in the PAYDAY series.


Every feature that is unlocked during Crimefest is released for free for the entire community of PAYDAY 2.

When are the unlocked rewards released?

During Crimefest. This year, we have worked around the clock making sure we can bring you all features unlocked during Crimefest itself.

How is challenge progress tracked?

Where possible, challenges are tracked through Steam. Progress will also be automatically updated on this webpage where possible every 30 minutes. Once a challenge has been completed, we will manually update the page to show the reward!

What happens if the community fails a challenge during the Road to Crimefest?

The reward connected to the challenge is not released.

How long is the Road to Crimefest event?

17 days, between the 28th of September to the 14th of October.

How long is the Crimefest event?

10 days, between the 15-24 of October.

What platforms can participate in challenges related to in-game statistics?

We can only track in-game statistics on the PC version of the game.

Will the content that is unlocked come to PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition on consoles?

Our ambition is to add everything that we can to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the game respectively. However, please understand that we are testing and adding content to the platforms in a chronological order. Because of this, it is too early to confirm that any of the features unlocked will be definitely added to consoles. When we are able to confirm that the features will be added to consoles, we will share the news with the community.

Will there be a physical event or a Crimefest party like last year?

No. This year we decided to focus on the digital aspect of Crimefest, making sure that we release all unlocked content during the Crimefest event itself.

What happened to the Twitter challenges and their progress?

We replaced the Twitter challenges with more in-game challenges.
The completed percentage of the Twitter challenge progress is added to the progress of the in-game challenge.
